Orange County Non-denominational wedding minister and officiant  Rev. Bruce Danzara will collaborate with you every step of the way to help ensure that you fully enjoy what ought to be one of the most exquisite moments of your life.

No two couples are alike and no two ceremonies are alike, consequently, "one size fits all", doesn't fit at all. That is why we provide an online Ceremony Selection Guide containing a broad array of ceremony texts ranging from civil (non-religious) to spiritual to religious. It will assist you in planning a wedding ceremony that is uniquely yours. The content and length of your wedding ceremony are totally up to you. Our Reading Selection Guide offers many wedding ceremony readings and alternatives that are visually exciting and meaningful that will add time, creativity and dimension. 


Rev. Danzara would be happy to collaborate with you every step of the way to create the wedding ceremony of your dreams - one that will resonate through out your married lives.

Everybody has heard horror stories about the things spoken by wedding ministers and officiants at ceremonies that not only took the bride and groom but also invited guests totally by surprise. Your wedding ceremony should say all the right things, the way you want them said, period!  Therefore, we provide you a draft of your ceremony for your approval in advance of your wedding day. While performing a fun, spontaneous and at-the-moment wedding ceremony, Bruce never goes on tangents departing from your pre-approved ceremony.


What your guests see at your wedding ceremony far outweighs what they hear. We highly encourage the use of visuals in the wedding ceremony.

I wanted to say thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony so great! I can't tell you how wonderful you were. Finding someone to marry us was actually one of the most difficult things to do. We were absolutely blessed to have found you. It was just "meant" to be! I just wanted you to know how grateful both Heath and I are for you and all that you did for us. Its so hard to convey to you exactly how awesome we think you are. Thanks again for everything! Dana and Heath

With Love, Flosil

Dear Bruce, Nineteen years ago today you married my husband Joe and me. I remember you saying to the audience that you wished they could see the love that was reflected in our faces at that moment. Well, many years have passed and the love that we share has only grown richer and deeper. God has blessed us with this love as well as faith, trust in each other & terrific communication skills. Thanks for being such an important part of the day when we pledged our love for each other before God and all the other people that were and have been central to our lives. Sincerely, Denise & Joe
